My favorite vacation spot is Kauai, Hawaii. It is very artsey and SO BEAUTIFUL! It truely is paradise! Thanks for a chance to win!


Happy Vacation!! My favorite spot would be near the water whether that is the ocean or a lake. It is calming, soothing, and even on a stormy day at the ocean there is something that makes me feel good to watch nature and the constant movement of an ocean!


I really love your Groovy Giveaway Friday, especially because you accept international comments, Thanks!
My favorite vacation spot is the north of my country, Iran. I enjoy seating on the quiet beach, watching the sunset. It's great.
Hope you have a great time in Florida.

Ooops, hit send too soon before giving my favorite vacation spot. It's a new one that we just visited in August. Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. We stayed at an all-inclusive resort, loved not having to worry about extra $$$$ while there. Super relaxing, absolutely gorgeous, just felt pampered and relaxed the entire time there!

Disneyland is my favorite place in the world and now that I have 3 little grandkids I dream of going back with my entire family. With all my aches & pains, I am definitely more apt to ride the little kid rides now than those thrill rides:) We took our kids there twice when they were younger. In 1985 they gave out cars to every 30,000 guest as it was their 30th Anniversary. My 10 year old son won a car!

I love the Oregon Coast (Lincoln City) as a place to go for relaxation and a fun time. There is so many cute little shops up & down the coastline to explore, great restaurants, and the beach is clean and scenic. My dream vacation is to visit Italy where my ancestors came from. My dream will finally be coming true in November!

*LOVE* the Oregon Coast! Great weather, nice people, and the seafood is to die for! :) Hope you're enjoying Florida!


My favorite vacation spot right now is Florida...because that is where my sister lives.We don't get to see each other as often as we would like..so a trip to Florida for a few weeks is great. We get to spend some quality time together.
Hope you had a great Vacation.
Thanks for a chance to WIN.

I love visiting my sister because lives not far from Virginia Beach. We have only been able to travel to see here once since we moved because it's a 13+ hour drive one way. She has came down to see us the last two years. It's time we made a trek north.

My whole family loves to travel and my favorite place is anywhere all of us can go together. Since our two children are grown and one is married, it's a bit more complicated to coordinate our schedules. But we still manage to do it and our latest adventure was a week in Washington, DC. The five of us had a fabulous time exploring the city. We go there often and it's never boring...always something new to see and do.

Hope your trip has been fabulous too!!
Thanks for the Groovy Friday Giveaway!!

Hi Erika, hope you're having a great holiday :) I love visiting New York City. I've been over twice and loved it so much. I think you could visit it about 50 times and do something different each time. A wonderful place to eat and shop. What more could I ask for? :) xx


Favorite place is Istanbul...so historical, cheap and has the best food ever!!!


Undoubtedly Honolulu Hawaii :}
Hunama Bay for a dayof snorkeling.. about 12 bucks to rent teh equiptment :}
hope Florida is sunny.
Just got back ( last Tues) from Old Own Alexandria VA and DC and it was a scorching melting 90 over the weekend totally rocked.,


So far the place I have loved the most is Tuscany - my husband and I did a 14+ country tour of Europe and I fell in love with this part of Italy. Paris was a close second.

Favorite vacation place is where we'd honeymooned - Ocho Rios Jamaica. I wanted laid-back, sun, surf, waterfalls and this place delivered! Location ... location ... location! Excellent food, service, kinda kitchy day trips ... nice time!

Thanx for bringing back the memories!
later, alligator!

St. Simons Island Georgia!!! The most beautiful place you could ever imagine. Walk on the beach, see the light house, beautiful homes with beautiful landscaping, to listen to the sound of the ocean and so many wonderful eating establishments!! Oh, how I enjoy just thinking and remembering about it. Love it, love it!


I have been around the world, but my favorite vacation was in Pennsylvania, in Amish Country. I just enjoyed the relaxed sightseeing with my family, and experiencing another culture without a language barrier. We ate a meal with an Amish family and it was quite quaint. We stayed in some awesome Bed and Breakfasts. I want to go back some day, and also to Hersey Park, which is in the neighborhood. :)


My favorite vacation spot so far is for sure the mountains!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the mountains, and hiking in them. They are just SO breathtaking!


my favorite vacation spot happens to be where I grew up, in Lake Arrowhead. It is fun to go in the summertime for the lake, and to swim, hike. and in the winter it is so much fun to go sledding!


Disney!!! Where an adult can be a kid!!!! So much fun!!!


Hi Erika - My favorite vacation spot is Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. We love to be on the ocean, have lots of things to do in close proximity, and visit with relatives who live there.

I imagine I would be happy on any beach on the east coast, but since I have only been to this one I will have to keep it as my favorite for the time being. I tell everyone I can hear the ocean calling me. It is true.



A Fantastic topic specially since your away! Well after living in Florida for 28 years and now living in Upstate NY .. I have to say my favorite vacation spot is Florida ... Vacations for me are RARE! .. so when I get the chance to visit family that I don't see near enough of, I go to Florida, It's home for them. I'm realy missing my Dad, so I'll go call him now. Thanks for the give away chance. I hope your family had a wonderful vacation.
Hugs, Lourin

My favorite vacation destination is Tofino, British Columbia. I love the hot, exotic places I visited but they can't compare to Tofino.
When I was a little girl, my family had a cabin right on the beach. I would go to sleep with the sound of the surf lulling me off to dreamland. When my boyfriend (at the time) found out how much I loved the place, he took me there on vacation. We stayed in a gorgeous little B&B and trolled the beaches, and looked in all the kitchy shops. Well one night we were watching the sunset on the beach and the love of my life asked me to be his wife!! I was shocked that he had been carrying around the ring for our entire vacation! We've been happily married for a year and a half now and I look forward to many more years together and many happy trips back to the beaches of Tofino.
